They're not inexpensive -- Heritage guesstimates they'll sell for somewhere between $4,000 and $6,000. But the great thing about our across-the-street neighbor is the Web site allows you to not only sneak-peek the pictures but dive right in -- so much so that you can see the details on Millard Sheets's famous murals (which Tim Headington promises to do something with some day) and read the plaques behind the giant desk in the office of former Dallas mayor and Mercantile Bank president R.L. Thornton. And, sweet fancy Moses, that has to be the most exquisite bank drive-thru in the history of money.
